Leak in the front/middle of the undercarriage

I found a leak in the undercarriage, a line is leaking and I can't figure out what it is. It doesn't seem to be a critical fluid, it actually looks like water.

If the leak is in the center front of the car and feels like oil but you can't located a leak. Look at the front motor mount, it is liquid filled and could be leaking. My 02 Camry with a 2.4 L 4 cyl had this problem at around 70K. Mount is less that $200 and I had a shop replace it because Toyota wanted to much to do it.

If the leak is under the passenger side, about midway back (right under the firewal, to be exact), there is a line that does indeed drain water. This is the condensate drain for the air conditioner. As the AC operates, it removes humidity from the cabin area. This humidity condenses into water, and collects at the bottom of the heater/AC box, and then is drained out onto the street, via a rubber tube, thru the firewall. This is a normal condition, much like the AC unit in your home, it too has a condensate drain line. Nothing to worry about.
NOTE: If you run the AC with the "FRESH mode" active, as opposed to the "RECIRC" mode, you will get MORE water draining out under the car, as the AC is working against fresh air entering the cabin/more humidity... Hope this helps. Please feel free to comment back if you have further questions, and Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I took bad hit from undercarriage of my minivan I have leak is it the transmission and why do I hear a hissing sound?


The a/c condensor is up front and mounted low you could have ruptured the line. It will stop after it lost all its pressure. Also there is a vacuum plastic can(tank) mounted under splash shield also.

How do you remove the catalytic converter heater shield on a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 3.3L? I need access to the rear heater lines that may or may not be leaking and they run between the heat shield and...


On most of these heat shields, they are bolted on, so look for the nuts, then there are some that are attached to the catalytic converter and welded on but you should be able to see if there is a leak, due to the lines wouldn't be so close, but these are known to leak in the area you are talking about like Dodges pick up trucks and vans, on how they run the brake lines up under the gas tank, and are known to rust and leak so more or likely you have a leak

What could be leaking under car tranmission


Hello, You really need to look under the Vehicle to see what is leaking. Best if you can put it inside with several newspapers under it. Then if it is a slow leak you will be able to look directly above the drip stain.
You have several things which could leak. There is a water draintube from the Air Conditioning ducts and it is normal and harmless for this tube to drain. Look at the color of what fluid is draining. Red usually means transmission fluid. There are cooling lines running from the Trans to the radiator. They can leak as well as the trans gasket.
If you have a 4wheel drive, the transfer case can also leak. Photos for the undercarriage are few and far between. Try a Web Browser search using your model vehicle and then the terms undercarriage photos. Avoid using diagrams as a term because you will get stick diagrams and no photos.
Some repairs are quite easy, but front seals require separation of the trans from the motor and some tailshaft housings require disassembly of the back of the trans to install rear seals. Depends on whether rear seal is accessible from the end or must be install with the casing removed. Rear seal requires removal of the driveshaft.
Sometimes you can get the photo you need from an individual using a Blog format. Look for Chevy or GMC blog sites, 4x4 sites and so on.

Replacing leaking transmission cooler lines under front bumper


There is no pressure when the engine is off. You don't have to do anything as far as putting pressure back in other than starting the engine.
Not knowing whats leaking and if its actually the lines then go get a replacement either at the parts house or the dealer.
